Amazing Grace

You may have recently heard about Grace Groner and her gift to Lake Forest College.  As a Lake Forest College staff member, I am truly touched not only by her very generous gift, but also by the way in which this story has touched so many lives.  This topic is trending in the top Google searches, shows up on the front page of Yahoo news, was featured on Good Morning, America and the Today Show!  Who would have thought that this very small, private, liberal arts College would become known across the country because of such an amazing story?!

I hope that Grace’s story will inspire you to give back to the communities that inspire you.  We can’t all donate $7M, but we can certainly give much smaller amounts, or even give our time through volunteer programs.

    The story also made Huffington Post and inspired a LFC student to create a Facebook group called “A Little Does A Lot,” which I think reminds us all that even though we can’t give $7million, if we all pool whatever amount we can give, it will add up and make an enormous difference.

    I think Grace also taught us all that we can live frugally and still have a full, well-rounded life and change the lives of others at the same time. There’s just so much to admire about Grace Groner.
